Hi

Is anyone else here a subscriber to Questia at www.questia.com. I've found it very useful as it has loads of books digitised that I don't normally have access to, including material by Meyendorff, Schmemann, Yves Congar and many many others.

It's well worth a look. I'm not leaving my username so this isn't an advert for it that I will benefit from at all. It just is really useful for all amateur theologians and church historians.

Slava Isusu Christu!

Wow!

I do believe I'm going to talk to our head librarian about subscribing to this.  I work in a law firm but occasionally we have requests for non-legal publications that aren't even on Lexis/Westlaw, some of which I see here on questia.com.

Hopefully I can convince her to subscribe, so I can delve into the theological stuff on the company tab Wink

It's not so expensive but it does mean that there's lots of useful books. journals, magazines and encyclopaedias available.

I've been using it for about 18 months now in a variety of study contexts and have found it invaluable.

I could never get hold of many of these books otherwise, or at least not without spending lots of dosh and then discovering it wasn't what I realy wanted.
